    Settlers first occupied the pioneer settlement now known as West Linn in the early 1840s when Robert Moore purchased 1,000 acres of land from the "Wallamut" (Willamette) Indians. He built his cabin high on a slope overlooking the Willamette Falls and set about building a town, calling it “Robin's Nest.” The town was situated on property now occupied by the West Linn Paper Company.
